Though, unlike many of the figures they have announced so far, Darth Maul actually didn’t receive that big of a make over. Looking at the images below, you can clearly tell that it’s Darth Maul very much how he appeared in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
Unlike the Square Enix Play Arts Kai Star Wars Variant 1/7th scale Stormtrooper (previewed earlier on my toy blog HERE) which looked very different for his film version, this Play Arts Kai Darth Maul doesn't look very far off from his screen persona, just like the Play Arts Kai Darth Vader (posted HERE). Personally, I am more excited about getting my hands on the Square Enix Play Arts Kai Star Wars Variant 1/7th scale Boba Fett which IMHO looks pretty awesome - see the pictures posted HERE.
This redesign of Star Wars Darth Maul is still a nice variation in keeping with the Play Arts Kai variant series started by Square Enix. The figure is currently expected to start shipping in August 2015 for approximately USD$125.
